Track Name: Good Times
There was a time we all went through
When Mother Nature told her children
You are not children anymore
I cannot save you from what is in store
They'll cover up your apple eyes
And dress you up in clothes you'll despise
They'll put a price over your head
A heavy halo you've been handed down

Time goes by, and you couldn't take it
Another sigh, come on we can make it

Good times that we are gonna have
Good times that lie right just ahead
Good times we're gonna have

Another trick, another trade
Another brick on the road to your grave
Beneath the sycamore I sang
All in all just a leaf in the fall
There was one summer I was sure
I was in love with your intentions
But are they cruel? Are they cruel?
Are they cruel?

Time goes by, and you couldn't take it
Another sigh, come on we can make it

Good times that we are gonna have
Good times that lie right just ahead
Good times we're gonna have

The time to forget it over
The time to forgive is now
Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I needed to
Get, Forget

Good times that we are gonna have
Good times that lie right just ahead
Good times we're gonna have

It's over for me, oh my darlin'
It's over for me, oh my dear
Track Name: Cassiopeia
When we first hung out I took you to Great Falls
And you kept apologizing 'cause we had to walk
But you're a good sport 'cause you laughed it off
And I was so excited to show you this spot

Our love is heaven sent
Our love is heaven sent

We were sitting there up upon the rocks
And I was interested getting hip to your thoughts
Oh then we climbed down, headed off for home
And I made a best friend that day, but how could've I known?

How could've I known that our love is heaven sent
Our love is heaven sent

You can read me anytime you want
As we laughing I stopped and thought
Where have you been all along?
All along I've been away

Our love is heaven sent
Our love is heaven sent

How could've I known?
How could've I known?
Track Name: In the Year of Jubilee
Tell me where your love comes from
If I told you, would you still come home?
Pallid in your wedding veil
Does the sweet song
Make you tremble to remember?

That's right
You said you knew a million boys
That they would sing for you, but
Where were they when you fell in love?
And it's love it's like a marathon in May
But if you stick around it's
One hell of a ride, God I'm sure you'll adore

In this year of Jubilee
We have grown up
Separate pines of independence

That's right
You said you knew a million boys
That they would sing for you, but
Where were they when you fell in love?
And it's love it's like a marathon in May
But if you stick around it's
One hell of a ride, God I'm sure you'll adore

Well, that's right I always knew about those boys
How they would sing for you, but
What overcame me on the palisades?
That night as I approached you on the green
And took your hand to tell you
(I want to hold you, I want to kiss you)
One hell of a ride God I'm sure
(I want to hold you and I want to kiss you)
One hell of a ride, God I'm sure
I'll endure
Track Name: Whirl
Rollin' your eyes like a cigarette
Here in the whirl of machinery
I die

Hypnotic hymns from the funeral
Wake here I am, sing the melody
To me

Oh don't worry about me
Don't worry about us

And I lost my face in a magazine
And hearin' the whirl of machinery
I cry

Oh don't worry about me
Don't worry about us

Dies Irae
Dies Irae

Oh don't worry about me
Don't worry about us
Worry about us
Worry about us
In the year of jubilee
We will sing the rosary
Promise me you'll worry about

Smoke rings blow over me
Singing you rosary
Mary go round and round
Sorrowful Mysteries

Sorrowful, sorrowful, sorrowful
Whirl
Track Name: Slow Down, Jerusalem
You said can you come with me
A couple of states or two
And when we're in Chicago
I play those Casio keys all night, but

Slow down, Jerusalem, uh-huh
Slow down on fire
Slow down, Jerusalem, uh-huh
Slow down on fire

I met you in the summer
The greenest season I have ever known
And when we're in the graveyard
I climb over the garden wall, but

Slow down Jerusalem, uh-huh
Slow down on fire
Slow down Jerusalem, uh-huh
Slow down on fire

Then again, then again, again
Maybe I don't know what's good for me
Then again, then again I don't know
I don't know

Someone told me to slow down, Jerusalem, uh-huh
Slow down on fire
Slow down, Jerusalem, uh-huh
Slow down on fire

I saw you down there by the sepulcher
And you had those red ribbons in your hair
And you were smiling at me and drinking Coca-Cola
And I hear you in the wind over Michigan

Pale as the night (where are you)
Pale was the night (where are you)

Then again, then again, again
Maybe I don't know what's good for me
Then again, then again I don't know
I don't know

Someone told me to slow down, Jerusalem (where are you)
Slow down on fire (where are you)
Slow down, Jerusalem (where are you)
Slow down on fire (where are you)
Track Name: Be Mean
I'm on the path I thought I chose
Never once had I been told
What it means to be alone
I don't think I'll really ever know

'Cause once in a while
I turn the dial
On the world around me
But I don't think I'll really ever know
I don't think I'll really ever know

Once in a while when I try to be kind
I loosen my grip and I start to be mean
Once in a while when I try to be kind
I tighten my grip, but I'm losing my mind

Time is a tap that never slows
Another drop, but no repose
I guess the water's just too cold
I don't think I'll really ever know

'Cause once in a while
I turn the dial
On the world around me
But I don't think I'll really ever know
I don't think I'll really ever know

Once in a while when I try to be kind
I loosen my grip and I start to be mean
Once in a while when I try to be kind
I tighten my grip, but I'm losing my mind

Tell me who you are
You never tell me
You never tell me who you are
Tell me who you are
Tell me who you are

Who are you?
Who are you?

Once in a while when I try to be kind
I loosen my grip and I start to be mean
Once in a while when I try to be kind
I tighten my grip, but I'm losing my mind

Are you
Who are you?
Who are you?
Track Name: Devil's Daughter
Lonely speakers on a telephone to France
And I'm talking to ya
I'm talking to ya
You're upset because you never could get me
And now I'm gone yeah
Now I'm gone yeah

Lonely speakers on a telephone to France
I am the Devil's Daughter
I am the Devil's Daughter
You're upset because you never fell in love
And now it's over
Now it's over

And sometimes when I'm asleep
I'm scared it'll come back
And sometimes when I'm asleep
I'm hoping it'll come back
Back, back, but you wouldn't believe

Lonely speakers on a telephone to France
I am the Devil's Daughter
I am the Devil's Daughter
You're upset because you never fell in love
And now it's over
Now it's over

Lonely speakers on a telephone
You're upset because you never could call me
So here's my number for your daughter
Please give my number to your daughter
Please give my number to the Devil's Daughter
Give it up, Give it up, Give it up
Please give my number to your daughter
Track Name: Friday the 13th
Out here with my conscience
I don't feel like speaking
If blood is so ugly
Then life is in vain

Another year older
And this is the last mystery
A sorrowful decade
For a sorrowful world

On Friday the 13th
Someone has a birthday
Don't make them unlucky
Just means they need love
Again

Don't cry for my darling
For me Daniel and don't
Cry for me darling, for me Daniel
And don't

Don't cry for my darling
For me Daniel and don't
Cry for me darling, for me Daniel
And don't

Tonight
Tonight you're on my mind
And for the rest of my life
I feel the sting then think of when you kissed me
As we played your song
But now it's done
You said you can't go on
I should've flown to your side

If it all levels out
I hope that you'd find a way
I hope so now

And I feel so down
And I can't stop now
Wish you were still here
Daniel, I miss you
And the tears fall now
And they won't slow down
Wish you were still here
Daniel, I miss you
Track Name: Estranged Brother
I was thinkin'
Oh brother of mind where've you been?
The year that you moved out
I started to notice some things

There was a cough in your room
I went to see if it was you
So ran to your door
How was I hoping for more?

And I was like oh promising good news
And I was like oh come on with that good news

I was walkin'
I didn't know what to do
Nobody's talkin'
Even with what we're goin' through, yeah

It's enough to shake me
Not havin' my brother around
Just enough to shape me
You've me cryin' out

And I was like oh promising good news
And I was like oh come on with that good news
Again

Strange
You know you're estranged, brother
Estranged
You know you're a strange, brother
Estranged
You know you a strange brother
Estranged
You know you're a strain

And I was like oh promising good news
And I was like oh come on with that good news
Talkin' 'bout that good news all my life and time

I wanted love
I wanted you
I want to change this world around you
I wanted love
I wanted you
I want to change this world around you

Love you
Who are you?
Change
Why don't ya?
Track Name: I Know Where My Good Luck Is
I know where my good luck
I know where my good luck is
I'm in love with laughter
Part of me you'll never get

If you want to know why
Stick with me and begin again
Again, again

Memories are fading
Memories to be replaced
So draw from all the good times
Fill in all the empty space

If you want to know how
Stick with me and begin again
Again, again

I know where my good luck
I know where my good luck is

If you want to know where
Look around, don't be scared
Start a band with your friends
It's not hard to begin again
Again, again
